welcome back to the morning news. it's now 4:51. and after nearly a week in space the crew of atlantis gets a little free time today. earlier this morning though it was some of the less glamorous work of being an astronaut. the crew actually had to hand carry some of the food and clothing over to the space station from the shuttle. have some video of them carrying those bags over. later this week they will refill the cargo container with trash and old equipment from the station and then return it to earth. and later this morning we get to talk live with the crew in outer space.
4:52 am
we're going to talk with the crew of atlantis from the international space station coming up at 6:26 this morning. well, a close call for one fisherman who has a hobby of catching and releasing sharks from his canoe. he got a bite. wanted to take a picture of his catch but the shark didn't cooperate and he flipped the man's canoe over. the man ended up wrestling the shark for half an hour to try to gain control and avoid being bitten. but he only walked away with a scratch to his finger and he did get his picture in the end. well, a bay area scientist wants people to help her track the population of bees. gretchen has organized an event called the great bee count. she wants people to plant flowers in their yards this saturday and report the number of bees that visit per month. the data will be collected to produce a map of the state of bees and many of which have been disappearing. this is the fourth year of this project. so far about 100,000 people

4:54 am
supporters say the city needs a place for dogs to run and claim that the area isn't used by many other people. a lake shore business owner says it could turn into an economic benefit. >> anything that brings more people to our district is a plus. this is an amenity for lake shore and lake shore would be silly to turn down any way to make our area more popular. >> it's going to cut off the open area. so right now we have in a very congested and enclosed urban neighborhood we have an open space that is half of it is going to be cut off. >> well, a parks commission could not agree to any recommendations to build no park, one park or both dog parks. well, tonight giants pitcher bryan wilson returns to work after a very memorable all star break. last night wilson stole the show on the red carpet during the annual espy awards in los angeles. take a look. his famous beard was an obvious

[ laughter ] >> tuesday night wilson closed out the all star game for the victorious national league. it's 4:55. let's check in with sal for a look at traffic, sal. you know when bryan first started that, pam, he looked like the most interesting man in the world from that ad campaign. but now he does look like the fiddler on the roof. >> he does. that was pretty funny. the tux was an interesting fashion choice. >> right. good morning everyone. there's not a lot going on which is nice. if you are driving around the bay we're going to start in contra costa county. if you are driving on highway 4 you can see that our road sensors are not picking up any
4:56 am
traffic which is really unusual. someone probably say wow i can get out to highway 4 and drive it the limit. that's pretty good. 680 also looks very nice and no problems as we look at east bay. we see a lot of green. that's just a lot of good traffic. westbound bay bridge the same thing goes. let's go out to the live picture. you can see traffic is moving along at the speed limit here at the toll plaza. and for the first time in a few days we've been able to see 101 san francisco. the last few days it's been under heavy mist and fog but not today. the road is dry and traffic is looking good. let's go to steve. sal, thank you. that is correct. we do have coastal fog but it's up a couple thousand feet moving inland but far less in the way of any drizzle or light rain. san francisco picked up another .04 yesterday. so that clicks along. that counts in the rain season. and it's been about three days in a row. there might be some today but it looks like, again, not much compared to yesterday that's for sure. the low clouds and fog are in place and they'll continue to keep us on the cool side. we don't see much change.
4:57 am
low 50s now. napa 51. santa rosa 50. not surprised to see upper 40s. haven't dug deep enough yet. a lot of mid-50s everywhere else. it's a little bite to the morning air. also a sea breeze west- southwest. means sacramento's even only forecasting 80 degrees. and by the way, yesterday palm springs was 99. that was a record low maximum temperature. i mean usually they can be this time of year 115, 116. for us plenty of low clouds and fog and also interesting to note that fresno's forecasted high today is a mere 87. and if that does come to fruition, it will be their coolest high going back to 1920. so it's not only cool here, it's cool the entire state of california. fog, sun, breezy, more sun today. a cool to mild but i think we'll see that low cloud deck burn off sooner and definite decrease in some of that drizzle but 50s 60s few mid to upper 70s. inland areas running about 15 degrees below average for many this time of year. we do see not much change. in fact if anything maybe
4:58 am
another little system kind of enhances that cooling on friday then levels off saturday. should be slightly warmer inland sunday, monday. all right. thank you, steve. well, in the wake of another bart shooting, a zero tolerance policy. the actions being taken in response. enough real food to feed a family of 4 or more for just 20 bucks. today is a kfc day. today tastes so good.
